Insect & Grub Control

A “grub” is another name for a beetle in its larval stage and they are known to be especially damaging to your lawn. They hatch and grow in your lawn’s root layer and their favorite activity is to munch on these roots which kills large patches of turf, leaving them brown and loose – easily disconnecting from the soil below. Grubs are also a favorite snack for animals like raccoons, skunks, and other burrowing animals and in turn, can quickly destroy large areas of your lawn overnight by digging up to look for them. Our treatments are designed to eliminate existing grubs and other lawn pests by keeping them from developing further in their life cycles.

Aeration

Aeration is when lawns receive the right amount of air, water, and other nutrients. This allows the area to grow rich and healthy. To make sure that the soil beneath your lawn conveniently gets the nutrients it needs, from different essential sources, we strategically perform an aeration process. Aerating your lawn needs to be done right with the correct timing. Careful planning with a thorough evaluation of the different conditions and factors present in your area is key in coming up with a perfect lawn care program suited only for you.

Seeding

An aesthetically pleasing lawn is majorly determined by how healthy and good-looking the grass is, and high-quality grass begins with top-grade seeds. Our premium seed blends, advanced seeding techniques, and specialized machinery ensure that our quality seeds flourish where it’s planted. We will evaluate the present condition of your lawn, identify priorities, learn what works best for you to enjoy your property, and recommend a seeding program that tailor-fits your unique needs.

As with any other maintenance job, everything can only go smoother and provide better results with proper preparation. As one of the basics of lawn care, timing is as important as the task itself. Executing the right procedures at the right time is crucial to success. Find us with a search for, “lawn care near me”, and our technicians will ensure that they time their work properly to complement the natural growth cycles of regional grasses’. Experts should know how to work with nature, not against it. Responding to the season is important for supporting your type of grass.

Spring

The arrival of spring prompts a major period of growth for cool-season grasses such as Tall Fescue and Kentucky Bluegrass. Zoysia and Bermudagrass are among the common warm-season grasses whose peak is still ahead after being dormant during winter. Lawns rouse from their winter slumber with an appetite. Promote strong growth in the warm season with a fertilizer application to give your lawn a boost. When it comes to crabgrass invasion, areas that are at risk are applied with pre-emergent crabgrass control, and weeds such as a broadleaf are treated as needed. A major contributor in maintaining vigorous growth and desirable coloration throughout the season is through applying gradual release fertilizer.

Summer

The higher temperatures and lower rainfall that summer brings causes cool-season grasses such as Kentucky Bluegrass, Perennial Ryegrass, and Tall Fescue to slow down. These grasses can also go dormant when extreme rising temperatures cause drought. This is not the case though for warm-season grasses such as; Zoysia and Bermudagrass. They naturally thrive under the summer heat marking the season as their peak growth time. Lawn care during the summer is an inviting activity because of the many recreational and fun events held outside. This time of year people are more drawn to the outdoors. So, your lawn will likely be more stressed and worn out considering the increased foot traffic and dehydration caused by extreme temperatures. It is only natural that the response to this season is well planned and executed to support your lawn grass effectively.

Fall

The fall of autumn leaves and the slight bite in the air mark the most active period of growth for cool-season lawn grasses. On the other hand, warm-season grasses slow down and start their state of dormancy. It may not be obvious but lawns grow best in the fall. A certain type of fertilizer application can promote rapid root as well as top growth that maximizes the recovery of the lawn grass from the various stresses suffered from the summertime. Weeds are also controlled at this point, as necessary, as well as other needed treatments to restore proper pH balance. Moreover, as winter approaches and the weather grows cooler, applications to further strengthen and encourage strong root development of your lawn are strategically done.

Winterizer: A Pre-Winter Rehab

Winter is coming, and just as soon as you see the first snowflake fall, you feel like you can finally take a break from worrying about the lawn for a few months. But before you do, there is one final treat you can give to your beloved lawn before it takes a much-needed rest until the next growth cycle comes. Applying Winterizer in the fall is one of the biggest ways to ensure your lawn is well supplemented and that it survives winter.
